Strings Attached: One Tough Teacher and the Gift of Great Expectations

Strings Attached: One Tough Teacher and the Gift of Great Expectations by Joanne Lipman and Melanie Kupchynsky, 2013

Excellent and insightful book! It is the true story about an immigrant from Ukraine who became a public school music teacher and influenced thousands of students. It is a well-written book about real people and true life experience.

Think Big: Unleashing Your Potential for Excellence

Think Big: Unleashing Your Potential for Excellence, 2005

Ben Carson’s woman had an amazing impact no the destiny of her sons when she required them two books a week instead of watching TV. I learned a lot from Ben Carson’s admonitions in how to “Think Big”. I think the thing I liked most was his idea of doing things to the best of your ability no matter what the task may be.

Midnight Crossroad

Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris, 2014

This is the first in a new series by Charlaine Harris. It was interesting, but could go either way. She seemed to suddenly end the book abruptly without much thought put into it.

Bone Deep

Bone Deep by Randy Wayne White, 2014

I enjoy the character Doc and would recommend this series. Set off the coast of Florida, there is a lot of history and flora, and marine life.

Stories I Only Tell My Friends

Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe, 2011

This was a well-written, entertaining book. Rob Lowe gives a fresh perspective on what real life is like as a movie star. I would definitely recommend it , and plan on reading his new book as well.

A Year Without Make-up: Tales of a Twenty-Something Traveler

A Year Without Make-Up: Tales of a Twenty-Something Traveler by Stephanie Yoder, 2012

I was disappointed with this book. The author tells about her experience of traveling for a year. I expected that it would inspire me and make me want to ravel, but it did not. I didn’t think she did a great job describing the places she had been, and much of it was poorly written. I would not recommend this book.
